This is a story of the early years of Pine, Arizona. More than that, it is set within geographical, topographical, social, and religious contexts in order to answer questions such as, why did European Americans settle here, why did it take them so long to get here, and why did Pine survive when so many frontier communities failed?
So if it seems that we are spending a whole lot of words before getting to Pine itself, that is the reason.
Major emphasis concerning the town itself is placed on the years 1878 through 1890. The author undertook the research and writing as a seminar paper while a Masters student at Northern Arizona University, thus, it had to end somewhere short of a book. Ending it following the first community crisis seemed as good a place as any.
A note on sources: There are few published accounts on the early years of Pine, so the author had to research county, state, and federal records, newspapers of the time, and local pamphlets, transcripts of oral interviews, and ephemera found in special collections libraries to piece together this history.
Please read the notes at the end, as much information is discussed there along with the identification of sources.
